In brief: Corns

Corns and calluses can be treated with many types of medicated products to chemically pare down the thickened, dead skin.
These products are share the same active ingredient -- salicylic acid, the ingredient used in over-the-counter wart-removal products.

In brief: Yes

If corns are painful, the treatment goal is to remove the pressure or friction to give it time to heal.
Initial treatment are home remedies including wearing roomy shoes, protecting them with moleskin or soaking corn in water and paring down with pumice stone or applying over counter salicylic acid product. If these options fail, then surgery can be considered.
